I have written some AppleScripts to automate and streamline my workflow. Previously, I have shared these scripts on Reddit but I have realized that I should have shared them here in case someone finds them useful. There is a dedicated
README file for each script which goes into a greater amount of detail but I will also give a quick TL;DR here.
This script is meant for those who practise GTD - Getting Things Done. Simply put, this script will create an outline of your projects using OmniFocus and OmniOutliner. There is a smart detection of project status which includes
deferred. Detailed descriptions of each are given in
README file. Personally, I use it for weekly reviews as this script gives me a bird’s eye overview of projects without getting bogged down into specific details.
This script creates a simple outline of project deadlines using OmniFocus and OmniOutliner. Instead of showing calendar days, it shows how many days are left. The inclusion/exclusion of start and end dates can be configured. Refer to
README file for the specifics.
This script allows deferring OmniFocus dates in a smart way. This is achieved by taking into account interval schedule (including on which days to repeat the task) and whether deferral takes place after 12am. The last condition is useful in case you are working late i.e. after 12am and want to defer to “tomorrow” which is actually today.
README file contains more details.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns here or by submitting an issue on GitHub.
